Note: I started with the Split Ring for the middle clover ring and then I made the other 2 side rings. Some of the rings are going to show reversed, so if the tatter is "picky" (VBG) I recommend using directional tatting (tat the ring in question in reverse half stitch order to create the all right side up look.)
